Hi, You are not annoying nobody. It,s always good to hear other people's comments on this site. Like you I am a nightbird and a great lover of 50s and 60s variety and game shows. Just took one of your links and watched the Intros. John Q at the end of the video made me laugh.He was really funny.It goes to show that comedy is timeless. I live in England and we have no free ( as far as i know ) archive sites who offer so much as this great site. In England they all want money up front.This great site is a real gem.My favorites so far is Bonanza.Cassius Clay title fight.This is your life. Laurel and Hardy.Chesterfield and the Perry Como Show.There's much much more to discover! You keep on messaging.It shows you care for this site. You know what I would love to see? Topcat. I watched it when i was a kid and i loved it. No topcat on here and it is an American production.Love to see it on here one day.

Hello!

I like "The Perry Como Show" too!

In terms of boxing, I don't know if this interests you, but the oldest surviving recordings of boxing matches seem to come from 1950. There's actually a surprising amount of surviving kinescopes of 1950s boxing matches. A few of them appeared on another website a while ago, so it is possible that they may one day appear on here.

On a related note: I heard of some footage of an old boxing match for which one side of the print has decomposed (nitrate), meaning the one of the boxers was gone, and the other boxer was punching into gooey nothingness (jelly?).
